's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right? >> well, that's true. he has a number of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama ca
and president obama's re-election looks pretty good right now. if it was a closing argument, what do you think the best closing argument would be for mitt romney right now? i mean, is reaching across the aisle, or should he seriously advocate for some policy that he hasn't been definitive on? >> you know, i think what he's trying to do, he's kind of gone small. this is, he's back to sort of the strategy he had during the republican primary, which is, he just doesn't want to make a mistake. he's trying to run down the clock. >> no interviews. >> that's right. >> i have never seen anything like this. that a guy who wants to be president of the united states has got a media blackout. what else do you call it? >> when you have major events happening he won't answer any questions but will send his staff to walmart to buy goods to use at an event. what is that? mitt romney's closing argument i think is, i'm just going to try to not make a mistake between now and the election so i'm not going to take any questions, i'm not going to do any interviews. that's not really much of a closing argument messa
president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praising the president of the united states in his partnership in storm preparation and response to the disaster. president obama passed, i think, the reach across the aisle test with flying colors. don't you think? the president spoke about his unified goal during a campaign stop in green bay. >> when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. all the petty differences that consume us in normal times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during a storm. they're just fellow americans. leaders of different parties working to fix what's broken. neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. communities rallying to rebuild. a spirit that says, in the end, we're all in this together. >> when you have a willing partner, you can get things done. all americans are willing partners i
right hand guy. the guy who was the first to support you, who's been hammering obama on your behalf all year suddenly looking like his best friend. whichever you way you dress this up, this cannot help mitt romney, can it? >> no. the cynic would say, what did mitt romney do in the last couple of weeks to piss governor chris christie. he didn't have to go the extra ten miles that he went. >> he say the president went the extra mile and his first responsible to the people of new jersey. knowing chris christie as i do, i think he is a straight guy. i like him very much. i think he is a straight talker. i think when he says it he means it. >> i thought he was sincere. >> i saw an interview with him last niechlt in his hometown devastated, places he grew up and i think he thought, this is not about this election and the president is going the extra mile for me. >> i saw the press conference he conducted and i was impressed with a couple of things he said. he pointed out how after irene a year ago, the hurricane, he put forward a bill in the new jersey legislature to change like a 100-year-ol
somehow -- >> you would think -- because obama is appearing presidential. he is not campaigning right now, he is standing at the podium in the west wing participating. >> but there is still a contingent who thinks he is using his kenyan voodoo power to cause this storm. >> yeah. >> of course people without power aren't going to be able to necessarily -- you can use your mobile device perhaps -- >> assuming it is a charged. >> exactly. and you have your internet connection which is probably down, your television is probably down you're going to have to use some sort of battery-powered radio to get information. >> could you come up with a battery powered radio. >> i own one. because i'm a florida native and we are trained from birth down there to be prepared for hurricanes. >> okay. >> i'm not sure i do anymore have a battery powered radio. >> wow, maybe i should get one. we live in earthquake company -- >> you can go to restoration hardware and get one of those crank ones -- >> yeah. they don't look like they cost that much -- >> well it's restoration hardware. >
clear of attacks on president obama. jeb bush on stage right now, he made a very interesting comment a few moments ago about storm response. he said it's the state and local response that really matters, not clear whether or not that was a dig at the president and the federal response that's going on and attention paid to the federal response. really, that'ses a close as either that they have come going after president obama in this event and lines up from what i heard of a top romney adviser this morning that the gop nominee striking a positive tone on the campaign trail. we heard mario rubio. i think the closest he got was talking about the state of economy saying this doesn't have to be the new normal and seeing right now is maybe the new normal of the campaign at least for today, sort of steering clear from those really negative attacks that you hear out on the cam pan trail as campaign s win down. it's interesting with president obama and new jersey governor chris christie looking at storm damage later on today. that is one of mitt romney's top surrogates and so sort of fighting
clean. resolve clean. >> eliot: g.o.p. for obama. you heard me right. but first bill o'reilly calls the kettle black. jimmy kimmel visits a barbershop to talk romney and one young girl sums up our feelings the last week president offal elections. when it doesn't fit anywhere else, we put it in the viewfinder. >> since we are in brooklyn, i stopped into levels barbershop on fulton street. >> what do you think mitt romney can do to get more of the black vote? >> turn black. >> he can drop out of the race. >> i'm tired -- i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? >> oh. it will be over soon, abby. okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >> you judge people by their associations. and that's what's very troubling about the democratic party in general. most democrats are honorable people civil patriotic well-intentioned but there is a lunatic fringe that has a lot of say in a party. >> let's go over some statements and you rate these on a scale of 1-10, okay? i like mitt ro
university of michigan and former chief economist at the obama labor department, and mom to the 3-week-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practica
christie's response here. he has been praising president obama. something we typically don't hear. >> right. and governor christy is saying this is a bipartisan issue. this is not about politics. because take a look. we're here on a main street in atlantic city. several blocks from the waterfront of this bayside community and you can see a kayak was washed ashore because of the storm. and this is only a little bit of the damage we've been seeing. take a look at this. this is a small houseboat that was torn from the pier. you see the pilings it was attached to, and it was just swept into the middle of this intersection here on the street. and this is the type of damage and destruction, zoraida, that the president will see firsthand when he comes here later this afternoon to tour this damage. he will talk to first responders and victims of the storm, and he spent three days off the campaign trail, because of the storm, and now he has to walk a fine line of anything as president, to console families who have felt the impact of the storm, while making it not look like merely a photo-op. as you
of the images have been extraordinary. as you saw at the top, president obama and governor christie toured the devastation area. more on that from jessica yellin right now. >> crisis makes unexpected political bedfellows. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern for his compassion and concern for the people of our state. >> president obama returned the favor. >> he has put his heart and soul in to making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> reporter: obama and christie on the presidential helicopter to review the storm ravaged coast, touring a shelter for residents who lost everything. >> fema here right now. >> and walking in a neighborhood among the hardest hit. among the surprises, a president not known for displaying affection showed it this day. >> we will get you together. i promise you. promise. you are going to be okay. >> and governor christie, one of mitt romney's top campaign attack dogs. >> give you a plane ticket back to chicago you have earned. >> reporter: went out of his way to talk about his leadership credentials.
candidates has been canceled. >> that's right. president obama was here in orlando yesterday, but left before his own rally, to go back and monitor the storm coverage. we're told he stayed abreast of the situation. he watched the storm coverage on television, like much of us, throughout the night. he spoke with the governors of the states that were hardest hit. cuomo from new york, christie of new jersey. and also talked to the mayors of new york city and atlantic city. talked about what they need. in the information he also one of the things we could do would be to expedite the process, by declaring major disaster relief. he'll have a conference call. eat seems like the campaign will go back on sket tomorrow, george. >>> we're getting more scenes of devastation. a large tanker ship washed up onshore of new york city. michelle charlesworth. power of the storm clearly evident right there. >> reporter: unbelievable. we pulled up. we jumped out of the truck. amy, this is a 700-ton tanker. dates back to 1962, we now know. it's "the john b. caddell." this is the narrows. that's where it came from.
dollars. >> yeah. it's a potential. >> jennifer: if it is not a swing state, who knows. >> that's right. >> jennifer: chris lehane thank you so much. how optimistic are you for president obama winning this election, as optimistic as when i came in here a couple of days ago predicting the giants would win the world series. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: i'm just waiting for next season when we can beat the yankees again. okay. up next, hurricane sandy has wreaked havoc up and down the east coast, the midwest may be next. >>"if you ever raise taxes on >>the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! ♪ just put a little bit of yourself ♪ ♪ in everything you do ♪ [ female announcer ] add your own ingredients to hamburger helper for a fresh take on a quick, delicious meal. it's one box with hundreds of possibilities.

jersey, still underwater, rescue is under way right now. alex. >> reporter: well, diane, we've learned president obama will be in new jersey surveying the damage tomorrow, but i want you to take a look around me here. this is what many blocks across little ferry, new jersey, look like tonight, completely submerged. if you look down some streets, you'll see cars that tried to get out but just could not. in this neighborhood alone, more than 400 stranded people were rescued today. rescuers made their way through flooded streets today picking up stranded families. >> want to come out? >> reporter: and the boats bringing people to where they could be trucked to safety. whole families huddled together in the backs of trucks. >> the entire first floor gone. able to go on the second floor. power is down. water is almost gone. we have a baby and elderly person. >> baby, baby here. >> reporter: the frantic rescue operation began around midnight last night after sandy's storm surge swamped new jersey. >> happened so fast, within 15 minutes we had 10 feet of water. >> reporter: stunned residents

before the election. if this is good news for obama in any way, he would be already be riding on the back of momentum from his very presidential performance. if it's bad news, it could throw the debate right back to jobs and the economy which is mitt romney's strong point in this election as it runs to its conclusion. >> well, it doesn't seem that the news is going to be all that bad even if it is bad because the aap numbers indicated that there were more -- there was more hiring. obviously the trajectory has been good, both on the political side with the polls as well as on the economy. you have the stock market rebounding, you've got manufacturing now at a 15-year high. the numbers out of the manufacturing sector are very good. so much of that attributable to the saving of the auto industry. so i think the momentum clearly is on the president's side and i think a lot of the early voting numbers that we are seeing where the president has a huge advantage in many of these swing states, if not all of them, attributable again to his ground game, i think that the numbers are getting to be ba

. >> all right. well, hopefully in the next day or two we'll get answers on that. sanjay, i appreciate your reporting. both president obama and mitt romney called off campaign events in the wake of the stovrm storm's devastation, of course. the official campaigning may have stopped but the photo ops have not, and with the election just a week away every word matter mattered.

served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
that we are trying to resolve right now. so i believe that the sincerity to be able to partner together would be more so by president obama even with his jobs bill out there in congress that we do not hear about too much. i think that could have put this nation further ahead even looking at corporations holding funds where employees could be working right now. i do not know if it is for the ownership of these corporations to determine -- host: thank you for your comment this morning. gov. christie also spoke yesterday from new jersey. >> the challenge now is to get back to normalcy. we need to be sure to get power restored as quickly as possible. hospitals are taken care of and we get kids back to school. i discussed this issue today with the president and am pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help us get those things while we were in the car riding together. i want to thank him for that. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. it has been a great working relationship to make sure we are doing the jobs that the people elected us to do. i cannot thi
: but noontime in washington, d.c., president obama breaking off from the campaign, took up the mantle of offense once again to urge americans to heed all the ominous warnings. >> the most important message that i have for the public right now is please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell to you evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. don't pause, don't question the instructions given. >> reporter: by afternoon, sandy spawned snowstorms in west virginia and flood warnings as far west as chicago. and tonight, as we see the massive impact all along the east coast the sheer scale of the storm is staggering, almost 3.7 million people are without power. more than 1.5 million ee vavace. 14,000 flight cancelations across the country. and from space tonight, the gigantic storm seems to have earned its halloween moniker, frankenstorm. from land tonight, the moon peeked through the clouds at the eye of the storm. that was a while ago. there is no question the storm is roaring back and while hundreds of thousands of people did evacuate a lot of people stayed, espec
right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at
to the problem. the public's a bit adrift right now and trying to decide, obama has not been a failure as president, he's not been great, he's not been a failure. is he mediocre? a little better than mediocre? is he somewhere near great? people will disagree on that, but nobody's arguing the issue is in play. romney's been a very effective candidate lately, very effective, and he got rid of his opponents, smashed them to nothing. i think he's got a great team around him. i think the president's team is too small, a little bit narrow and isolated to put it lightly. but i tell you, obama does have that amazing luck. and here's a guy that ran for the senate against two or three opponents who all dropped out because of marital problems. he walked into the united states senate, he was a celebrity before he got there. he ran against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched.
